Re: Why was the difficulty of pirates set so high?

One important note about all of this: Oolite != Elite. As the Oolite home pages says, "Oolite is inspired by the 8-bit classic Elite" (emphasis added). It is not a point-for-point replication of Elite. If that's what you're after, then Elite: The New Kind is probably what you're after. Oolite at its...

There's a 1.77.1
It should work fine in 1.77.1, or in 1.80 or 1.82. I think any of those versions should be OK.

It probably comes from the previous version of BGS: BGS-A_1.10.9.oxz

Re: [Release] Space Crowds

I think isRock would work more consisently. And isBoulders isn't quite right -- it's isBoulder, singlar.

Re: BGS 2.5.1: How can I remove the parts that I don't want?

I saw mention of this being a setting/parameter in missiontext.plist, but I can't find where to change it. On the F4 screen, select "Config for Addons". Select "List Settings". BGS should be on the first page of settings. Use "Next setting" to move the highlight to the correct entry, then select "S...

I can upload those savefiles if you want them.

Re: Equipment Storage OXP

- shield cycler; Well, apart from finding some bugs in Shield Cycler, I wasn't able to store any part of a shield cycler installed on a ship. This is because almost all of the Shield Cycler equipment items are set with "visible = false", which means by default the equipment storage process will ign...

Different OXP there - Dictators. If you want to send some specular/gloss maps through, I can look at adding them to the pack. Although, it looks like you've been doing some reskinning on them anyway!

Re: Normal, Specular and Gloss Maps Pack for 1.88+

Might need an update on the website. Currently the highest "minimum version" is 1.88 - this would need 1.89.

BTW, a_c, these shots look incredible.

I guess that would be BattleDamage (oolite.oxp.smivs.BattleDamage.oxz)
I don't think that's the one. There's no mention of lasers anywhere in the equipment plist or scripts. I'd suggest instead [EliteWiki] Laser Booster. Breakable lasers are part of that one.

Re: Laser Mount Switching System (LMSS)

yesterday, as I switched from the ML to the Ergon I got a Laser Cooler into the primary position... After some checking, it looks like Laser Cooler is the culprit in this case. It's switching in the "Laser Cooler" equipment item when you disable weapons. I think LMSS might be triggering this in som...

Re: Laser Mount Switching System (LMSS)

In a fight my primary forward laser (Military) was damaged, I switched to the secondary (PewPew). Sometime latter during the fight the primary forward laser turned to Military, and the secondary forward position had no laser. As lasers aren't normally damagable in the core game, I'm thinking this m...
